About Me


To gain some perspective on life through meeting other travelers


I'm an easy going person with a good sense of direction. I really love to see people happy and I love to be happy myself. I love the view of the world from a child's perspective, so I have a child-like zeal within me. I love to try things once and want to see all that I can.


I live my life through experience. Nothing is off-limits in life for me, I want to try as many different things as I can from food to adventurous endeavours to volunteer programs. I want to base my life on experiences and the insight gained from them.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm new to couch surfing, but I would love to host travelers when I return home or just meet up with them in Chicago or Milwaukee for a drink.


I surfed around Europe when I studied in Greece and I have now successfully hosted a few times =]


I'm interested in a good discussion, reading, traveling, cooking, music, arts and crafts, nature, horse back riding, and just keeping busy.

Music, Movies, and Books

I really love Pink Floyd, but I'm also pretty open for music... Indie Rock, Classical, House, Trance, Techno, Swing, Experimental, some Rap, Christmas music =], Instrumental, Reggae, Folk, Acoustic, Classic Rock, Vocal Jazz... and so forth.

I do not really watch movies all that often, but a few of my favorites include.. Koyaanisqatsi, Big Fish, Requiem for a Dream, Pi, Everything is Illuminated, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Candy, What Dreams May Come, The Wall

I like a good book that provokes and stimulates good thinking.
